Proudfoots in Wisconsin

Hi, can anyone help me find more about this family.
William Proudfoot possibly born 1823 Berwickshire to John and Sophia Proudfoot

Went to America around 1858 and married that year to a Mary A.

Had children
Margaret 1860 born Louisiana
John 1862
Sofia 1864
William 1867
Mary Ann 1870
Edward 1876
Walter 1879 all born Wisconsin.

Family living in Mount Hope, Grant, Wisconsin in censuses

Atree has a birth for Proudfoot in the right area but index only and mother is Mary Emma Day but she seems to be Mary A on all the census born May 1842 Scotland.

I have checked for a marriage in Scotland but not finding anything. Have tried to find any Mary Emma Day in Scotland census, no luck there either. But Day isn't very Scottish.

Anyone got any ideas of anything I can do to find her maiden name, marriage etc?
